“The outcome, with your help, was much better than what could have been.”
Saying "Thank You" does not even begin to accurately convey our gratitude to you for your help in my son's time of need for legal representation.
Before contacting you, we had an attorney who was not returning calls, was not answering our questions, and was not informing us of...quite frankly...anything.
After weeks of the above frustration and fear of the unknown, I woke up one morning with this deep gut feeling that as the mom of a son in need, knew I HAD to do something for my son. As it turned out, "that something" was to find YOU.
Upon calling, I was surprised to immediately be connected to you personally. Briefly, I informed you of my son's situation. With not a second of hesitation, you asked how quickly could my son get there. He was able to meet with you within 2 hours of my call.
I'll fast forward here just by one day and state that had we not found you and had you not immediately jumped into action, my son would have been indicted within days! You stopped that from happening and saved him from what would have been the worst of the worst.
We shudder to even think....
After the initial private consultation and while he was still in your office, you contacted me, with my son in full agreement. With what I will call brute honesty, you explained the seriousness of his situation. I was terrified for him. You said that my son was visibly shaken. I probably only digested about 20% of your words that day, but yet felt certain that he made the right decision in wanting you to represent him. Our feeling of certainty couldn't have been more accurate.
My son is a young adult, "Adult" being the key word here. I realize that you did not have to take that huge extra step to suggest a conference call with me that day, but you did. May I add here that it was not because I was the one paying your fee. My son had already informed you that he would be the one responsible for that. Expensive? Yes. Worth every penny? Definitely...Yes. Your expertise, years of experience, knowledge, endless and tireless efforts were truly invaluable.
Greg, how on earth do I say thank you for helping my son? How do I express how grateful I am for including me in the process? Yes, my son was in full agreement of me being included and informed, but I know your encouragement to guide him in that direction meant that you were willing to give much more of your time, effort and energy than you would have had to.
I did not give this tons of thought at the time, but I most certainly have since. In the first few hours after the initial consultation, you not only swiftly moved into action with your legal expertise, but your wisdom shined through as well. In my opinion, you knew that my son needed love and support, as anyone would, when facing such troubles. Being informed, gave my son and me a precious and priceless gift. The gift of he and I being able to talk about it all openly with one another so that I could give him the emotional support he so needed. It gave him a chance to prepare with me by his side. It gave him the needed boost to stay strong and not feel alone in it all. From the bottom of my heart Greg - I thank you.
To any potential client, any parents or loved ones who may read my letter and are considering a call the office of Greg McCormack..I would say do not hesitate. Call now! After your call, appreciate the brute honesty in the way you are given information. Above all, know that you or your loved one is in the best of hands in legal representation from Greg and his talented, ambitious team.
Jarrett, you also were wonderful in assisting with my sons case. My son not only benefited from your legal expertise, but he easily connected with you ...maybe..being somewhat due to being closer to his age (sorry Greg). The benefit that came with feeling such a connection was very important to my son. You met with him and visited him on numerous occasions, helping him tremendously.
To Theresa, your efforts and knowledge were also invaluable. You were able to answer so many of our questions and took the time to do so. Everyone's knowledge and efforts, without a doubt, contributed to the best possible outcome in my sons case. Greg is fortunate to have such a wonderful team which made us very fortunate as well.
After successfully getting my son past an indictment from happening, your negotiations with the prosecutor began. Again some success. The guidelines for this offense are more harsh than for those who have committed a far worse offense. I can only say that facing what it is, your experience and knowledge in representing one being charged with this offense was outstanding.
I was impressed with your credentials which I read on your website before I first called you early that morning. Once we witnessed your knowledge and swiftness in all your actions, we felt some of the weight lifted from our shoulders. Every question was answered, every process and guideline explained. With every step taken, you immediately informed us and then went on to explain what the next steps would be. It was evident you had a great reputation and are well respected and trusted by those on both sides of the fence within the legal circle.
Unfortunately, there was not much choice but to enter a plea. Sadly, the outcome could have been much worse had he not. You explained it all to us thoroughly.
You and Jarret gave us hours of your time that day in your conference room. You did not hurry us in the process of this important meeting. It was clear that your intention was to answer any and all of our questions and for my son to be fully informed in this decision and it's process. On a personal note, I remember when you momentarily stepped away and valiently came back into the room with a box of tissues for me and a supportive hand laid on my sons shoulder.
I wish I could write with all the correct legal terminology in all the right places. I have though, written with the utmost sincerity, which I hope conveys to you, and others who may read it, that we know we could not have made a better choice than you to represent my son. Your expertise, vast knowledge, years of experience, extremely knowledgeable staff, along with your your endless energy and efforts.....you ultimately helped my son receive a better than expected outcome.
Back to my mention of your brute honesty for a moment. Although it was not easily accepted at times, I am sure it was the only way, the best way to be given the information you had to deliver. You knew that. It did not go un-noticed the care and compassion we were also given. Before walking into court on the day he entered his plea, you squeezed my hand. You understood the fear I felt for my son that day. I closely watched as you stood in front of my son, reached out and straightened his tie, squeezed his shoulders and looked into his eyes...with compassion in yours. Even with the sound of what seemed like a freight train in my head, I listened to your words of advice as I had complete faith in you. Although most times it was through tear filled eyes, I don't believe I missed much of anything when it came to seeing how you helped and fought for my son. The outcome, with your help, was much better than what could have been. I will never forget Greg, and will be forever grateful.
